Last November I changed my password in iTunes for my Mac for my encrypted iTunes backups. I saved the password in 1Password as well as in the Notes app. I’m sure it’s correct.
Today I backed up my iPhone, turned off Find My iPhone (required for a restore) then tried to manually Restore From Backup and when I entered my password (several times) but each time was greeted with…
The ‘More Info’ sent me to a page on Apple’s site basically saying that if you don’t know your password too bad.
And since I allegedly don’t know the password I can’t change the password, or start afresh with a new backup (well, I could, but it would be inaccessible to me for a restore!).
Is there any way to remove the current encrypted backup and reset iTunes?
As a last resort, would creating a new User Acount on my Mac allow me to use a fresh iTunes instance to create an encrypted backup there?
(I have a very large iPhone Xs Max, and I’d really like to restore locally instead of taking hours longer by restoring from iCloud.)
